Mein Auto: 2013 550i X Drive M Sport
Quality Exhaust Shop North Shore Chicago

I am looking to install M5 mufflers (mid pipe resonators back) on my 2013 550xi. Now that I found the OEM m5 rear muffler part numbers, will purchase brand new from getbmwparts.com

Anyone have a recommendation for a high quality exhaust shop located in North Suburbs of Chicago to do the install? Having researched this topic on the forum, it looks like there will be a little bit of work to get the mufflers to line up correctly on 550xi rear defuser, reducer sleeve required to match the 3 inch M5 exhaust pipe to the 2.5 inch 550 exhaust pipe, etc.

Not interested in any of the aftermarket exhaust options, need something with no drone and moderate sound as this is a daily driver - m5 stock exhaust with vacuum assist second valve should fit the bill nicely for me. Also not interested in switching to M5 rear diffuser - just want a little more sound out of my daily driver 550xi without too many mods.
